Well, it's summer again, and nature's calling! Let's get out & enjoy what nature has to offer while it lasts right?:) Coincidentally this concert happens to go along with the Fourth of July theme... hmm, not so hard to guess what it will be right? Yup, let's say Bernstein... enough clue?? Enough said, read below for details about concert program plus our specific game plan for the day:

-11-11:30 a: All meetup members SHOULD arrive by this time TO SECURE YOUR SEATS.(*Bring a low beach chair with you to add comfort sitting in for a long time PLUS hat/parasol to prevent from getting sunburn; Oh, bring things to read and games to play with a group of people like classical music trivia!)
-11:30-2: Yup, our fun picnic begins (*Please bring your lunch, favorite snack & beverage to share with others; We could coordinate via meetup communication if everyone's up for it) Then playing games, reading, basking in the sun (hope it's warm & sunny like last year!) or short napping sounds like fun to do before the concert at 2p
-2p: Concert begins!
Whenever concert ends, let's not forget to help cleaning up. It goes faster when we do as group of course.
